I been with google for this will be my 3rd month. This month I will be getting my first check. I heard people talk about getting PIN's is this for EFT only or is this for people getting checks? Also once they post the amount you made for the month about how long does it take for a check to reach a person on average? I live in the united states in Indiana not sure were google is located.

google is in California. You will be paid within 30 days of of final earnings being posted (usually 29th or 30th day you get paid) if you choose EFT you just need to give your bank account info and the money is deposited automatically. If you prefer a check it is mailed to you and will receive in a couple days from it being sent. Not sure about the PIN I have never used it or had it requested of me and I get paid each month on time.

electronic funds transfer. It is where instead of waiting on a cheque, the money goes straight from googles bank account to your bank account. It si much quicker but they only offer it for some countries at the moment

PIN is a new policy for new Adsense users, It will send to you when you reach $50 earning in your account.

I join in Feb this year, they send me PIN on Apr and I received it in end of May. They sent my first check on end of June and I received it within a week.

I don't get it. I've recieved checks from Adsense every month for two years now and I don't remember any notification of a PIN (personal identification number?). Why would I need a PIN?

Does anyone read or understand anything before ticking the check boxes etc when applying for the Adsense "Licence/Permission" to potentially make money?

Incredulous...READ and LEARN about the contract to which you have entered which can be terminated at a moment's notice IF you violate the terms to which you have agreed.

Do you really believe you are experienced enough to do business with others without reading the small print?

I went to account and payment history and I don't have anything that says anything about PIN. In June I will make enough money to get my first check. Last month I went over the 50. Should I still be getting my check for June or do I have to wait for a PIN before I get my first check?

my recollection is you get a PIN after earning 50. You get your money AFTER 100 AND they have received the PIN info back

Ok so I probably won't be receiving my first check then. I hit 50 last month and will go over 100 this month :/ allwell.
